president biden is having lunch with several middle class americans who would see their income taxes go up if the tax cuts are not extended. all of this comes as the first jobs report since the election exceeded expectations. the u.s. economy added some 146,000 jobs last month. that was enough it to drive the unemployment rate down to 7.7%. joining me to talk about all of it, florida congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz and she chairs the democratic national committee. good friday afternoon to you. >> thank you. >> john boehner said today that democrats' plan is to, quote, slow walk our economy to the edge of the fiscal cliff. how do you respond it to that? >> well, that's just utterly preposterous. the republicans right now in the house of representatives have a bill that would extend the middle class tax cuts right away that has passed the senate that they could take up next week when we come back. they could have already taken it up. we have a lot of time, and the republicans refuse to give certainty to the middle class. the president said he'd seen this bill right away, and then the

be interesting, though. if vice president biden runs, which has been speculated about, there will be a real conundrum, and i think there's a conundrum for the democratic establishment if secretary clinton goes there. a lot of people feel that she would really be able to get the support of the big democratic donors and traditional parts of democratic party but not be able to bring along new parts of obama coalition, hence the gay marriage sticking point. 2016 is definitely wide open. hillary clinton was referred to me recently by an operative on the democratic side, very involved in the early jockeying says she's the 800-pound gorilla. if she goes the field is not necessarily hers for the taking, but she would have a significant advantage coming into the race. >> when the former president is asked if his wife will run, he always says he has no idea. is there any indication behind the scenes that she's either annoyed, flattered or feels pressure as so many people -- the election wasn't even over, and everyone had their list of republicans running. of course, her name has always been there for
president biden used that. schadenfreude, the german word for damage and joy, taking pleasure in somebody else's sadness. and the word meme because of all the internet meme that came out of the deaf bait, hillary clinton's texting earlier in the year. >> think it's so interesting that socialism and capitalism came up as the words the year because the president was branded as a socialist so people were looking to the actual definition. clearly you saw a huge uptick in online searches. >> what's great about having the dictionary online the data floss two ways. anybody can look up a word for free but we can see what word they are and that's how we connect them with trends with the news. >> there are now 225,000 definitions in this 11th edition. >> that's the collegiate dictionary. as a print product our best selling >>> we all know it's very frustrating when you can't get to sleep. there's new research that says it may be dangerous for your heart. look at the serious health risks of insomnia. that's coming up next on cbs "this morning." even though our mom tries, she doesn't really get us. a
